“A nice place to stay in Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2010

This apartment is very cute and clean. When you walk inside the building you will have to clime a very steep set of stairs. It's kind of hard to carry large suitcases because it's so steep. The apartment is cute. The keys were kind of confusing to me. It is in a good location and close to everything. We walked to all the points of attraction. I just wouldn't recommend walking around at 2 am unless you are in a large group. It's Amsterdam so there are some shady people there. Other than that it's okay.

The rooms are in a great location within blocks of the Van Gogh Museum, the Rijks Museum, a huge park, the canals, the Heineken brewery, and lots of restaurants. The tram stop is very close, and it is easy to get anywhere on the tram. The neighborhood is very quiet and enjoyable. There are several great little restaurants and bakeries in the neighborhood, and we enjoyed just walking around it. The B&B is less structured than most as it is not in a single building with a common dining area, and there is no businss office, but the price is great and the rooms have a lot of space. There was a problem with our booking, but Bibie figured out a reasonable solution for us.

We stayed at Bibies' B&B in Amsterdam in her 2 bedroom apt #30 for four days. We arrived well before check-in time and they were happy to accommodate us 11AM in the morning after a long flight. We only shared the apt with a couple for our first day and had the rest of it to ourselves for the rest of the time.

The location is very convenient to everything and we walked a lot instead of taking the tram since Amsterdam is so walkable (Just watch out for the bikes, trams, and cars). We used Bibies' museum pass for plenty of museums for free. That was a huge plus! Also there was a supermarket a stone's throw away which was convenient. The tram was just a block away from the apt and runs regularly to Centraal Station (15 mins).

They gave great recommendations for neighborhood spots and were very hospitable. Having never stayed at a B&B before, it was a friendly and welcoming experience. I would recommend Bibies to anyone that is vacationing in Amsterdam.

Check out the Rembrandt Huis and Jazz Alto!

the B&B is a 2 bedrooms appartment and it's located in a very quiet district of the city. There's a supermarket just behind the corner and all cityhilights are easily reachable by trams which are frequent and always in time. The downtown (Dam square) is 15min walking.

My wife, three children, Father-in-law and I stayed there for a few days during the US Thanksgiving holiday 2009. We were very comfortable. Bibie took great care of us and it's location is great. I highly recommend staying here as a family or a couple looking for a getaway. Enojy!
